at this time is the more or less maintenance of the status quo in which barack obama will continue to occupy the oval office as the republicans continue to patrol by reversed number of the house of representatives with the senate at this time being up for grabs. so we should be open for the possibility that the current election will fit the shakespearean description of sound and fury signifying nothing or very little with regard to domestic policy and that is what i am focusing on. perhaps not nothing. considered the conclusion of tom friedman's column on april 22nd of this past year in which he expressed great concern that i certainly share about the health of our political system. he began by asking what some leaders found no doubt inflammatory, quote, does america need and arabs spring. his answer is basically yes, quote, we can't be great as long as we remain a of the talks with the rather than a democracy. our deformed political system with a congress that has become a form for legalized bribery is truly holding us back. ave talk receipt allows what some would regard special interest to
of an unstable system. every president has made the same promise to with roosevelt including mr. obama. if you would just follow my policies, these presidents have all said, not only what you get out of the current economic mess but, pregnant pause, we will thereby make sure this kind of economic crash does not afflict her children. every president has promised that no president has yet delivered on that promise. everyone has failed. we can't control it. the monetary policy commences for policy, federal reserve, seamless program. we were supposed to have this crisis. what moore had made to reduce jicama were told by mr. bush advisers that he was just in the housing market subprime mortgage would all work out. they regularly told us the federal reserve has just such on the quantitative easing program number three. the reason they pump money for the third time is because the first two didn't work you did recently had to to have multiple stimuli was because they didn't work. so it is a very unstable system. it is not clear what that is about, except that it's very deep, built-in and the reason we
